Professional Summary

Eight years in general commercial practice in the UK gave me a strong grounding in management, agency, and valuation across asset types.  After completing an MBA at one of Europe's leading business schools, I consulted to property and business services organisations on process improvement initiatives; I later joined AMP, to lead process improvement in their property funds management businesses; I now work with industrial and commercial clients in Australia to maximise the financial outcomes of major property transactions.



I established and developed an agency practice in regional UK which over six years grew to a predominant position in the region, turning over in its last year of my involvement some $700 million of real property; I led the marketing of an accountancy practice, from product development to $2 million dollars of annual sales; I put AMP's shopping centre portfolio onto the internet, and created interactive tools to enhance shoppers' experiences; I have established, and continue to develop, a successful corporate advisory practice across Australian markets.
